Presenting the latest research on the effects of cold and sub-zero temperatures on plant distribution, growth and yield, this comprehensive volume contains 28 chapters by international experts covering basic molecular science to broad ecological studies on the impact of global warming, and an industry perspective on transgenic approaches to abiotic stress tolerance.
Demonstrating the quantum leap genomics represents in technology, this book documents the initial research strategies, the development of genomic tools and resources, and the legume-community consensus on the research objectives that will guide the genomic characterization of major legume crops.
This revolutionary book is a practical guide for helping communities in any location or context – from a fishing community in England to a logging town in Canada to a farming village in India – to develop a collective vision of a prosperous and sustainable future and a road-map for mobilizing and managing their natural resources to realize that future.
Mycotoxins are fungal secondary metabolites that may be found in human foods and animal feeds. These compounds belong to families of organic molecules that share no significant properties other than the ability to confer death, disease, and misery on humans and other animals that consume them. Mycotoxins, and the fungi that synthesize them, frequently are detected by discoloration or other symptoms of fungal growth, but insidious contamination where the infected foodstuff appears normal to the eye is a significant problem.

It is no surprise that women and men experience biological and physiological differences fundamentally and throughout the lifecycle. What is surprising is that faced with such a self-evident truth, there should be so little consideration to date of how these differences affect susceptibility to disease and metabolic response to dietary treatment.
Since 1973, Storey’s Country Wisdom Bulletins have offered practical, hands-on instructions designed to help readers master dozens of country living skills quickly and easily. There are now more than 170 titles in this series, and their remarkable popularity reflects the common desire of country and city dwellers alike to cultivate personal independence in everyday life.
The ever increasing demands for environmental and consumer protection are a continuous challenge for research, development and regulation of crop protection chemicals. This book exclusively documents thirty invited lectures held at the 10th IUPAC International Congress on the Chemistry of Crop Protection in August 2002. These edited contributions take the form of reviews and presentations of original research results. They cover fundamental aspects of biology, chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology of disease, weed and insect control agents, as well as economic issues, aspects in production, formulation and application, and recent regulatory developments in environmental and consumer protection.
Food security has been and always will be a human concern. Food security has always been fragile, threatened by a variety of factors including plant disease epidemics. Several plant disease epidemics of the past lead to questions like: What happened? How did people deal with these epidemics?
